Year Old Wows Crowd with National Anthem Performance

That's 7-year-old Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, and she may be the LA Galaxy's most valuable player.

On Wednesday, the Galaxy announced on social media that Malea Emma had won its #GalaxySocial national anthem contest. Ibrahimovic retweeted her performance with the caption "MVP of the game!". Her reaction to winning included yelling and jumping on her bed - exactly what you'd expect from a 7-year-old.

Ola Kamara and Emmanuel Boateng also netted to end Galaxy's seven-game winless run.

The MLS team's public address announcer introduced the 3-foot-9 prodigy as "tiny but mighty", before she delivered a soulful rendition with chops to rival Christina Aguilera.

Before she books that gig, she will again be singing the national anthem, but this time at Staples Center before a Lakers game in November.

"She's been singing forever, basically before she could speak", her dad, Arman Tjandrawidjaja, told USA Today.

The second-grader has a YouTube channel and an Instagram account with more than 16,000 followers.

CBS News asked if her singing talent comes easy to her, but she said it takes work.
